With more than 230 photographs in gorgeous full-color, it is a book in love with New York – a showcase of buildings, skylights, and bridges. Architect-photographer Richard Berenholtz has devoted much of his career to chronicling the architecture of the city of perpetual change. From skyscraper to farmhouse, from mansion to wall mural – the historic, the civic, and the grand are featured as well as the modern, the granite, and the glass. A stellar introduction by Ellen Posner launches this enlightening perspective on New York City’s many facets. Architecture historian Donald Martin Reynolds explores Manhattan’s diversity from the flatiron building to Rockefeller Center, from tenements to glass towers. It is this unique combination of outstanding talent that makes this book one of the most devoted and comprehensive looks at the city today.” Illustrator: Berenholtz, Richard. Quantity Available: 1.
